    Kalamazoo area...

    Ive recently moved to Kalamazoo and have heard there are some good trails in the area and im thinking about going out to them sometime this fall. Im new to the sport but ive got a good enough bike to dive head first into some decent trails. Im hoping maybe a few of you guys are from around here and would want to go trail riding sometime(weekend). Id like to start off with some of you bcause you guys actually have experiance and it would obviously help a new guy like me figure things out and learn.

    Fort Custer to the east. Dr. Lawless park to the south. Cannonsburg DH type runs to the North West....

    I live in Fort Wayne, I've been thinking about coming up to Custer sometime soon. I haven't ridden there in about 10 years, so things have likely changed a little. Anyone interested in a group ride?

    Are you in college im guessing? Im free after 1pm on Monday(have class until then), so maybe if you wanted to meet up at like 4 or something it would work(im not sure what you schedule is)?

    We could also do something next weekend. It would probly work out better for the both of us if your on busy.

    Kinda like college, Paramedic training. I don't get out of class until 2 or 3, and it's a 2 hour drive for me. The rest of the month looks bad, next weekend I have to work and the weekend after that we're doing trail work here. So maybe next time. I'll probably go Sunday if anyone else will be at Custer.

    Wow, I never knew anyone actually moves to Kalamazoo anymore...lol. Usually people leave that area to more warmer climates.
